Coming Up:


Drone Lab

Since Amazon announced their ‘prototype’ Prime Air Delivery Service it seems that not a day goes by without another announcement about a potential application for civilian drones or small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS).

Throughout the summer months Open Labs will be holding a unique series of workshops exploring the commercial applications of sUAS. Covering techniques applicable to a wide range of sectors, from the life sciences to construction, these sessions will give you hands on experience, a key understanding of potential applications and a firm grasp of the safety aspects of flying sUAS.

Running from June to September the programme is designed to bring together people with an interest in the civilian applications of sUAS whether they be sector specialists, technologists, engineers, operators, software developers and end users to help them explore this emerging opportunity.

For more details contact Andy Goodwin.
